67 People I'd Like to Slap [9781785901355]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

67 People I'd Like to Slap is one man's journey through the labyrinthine world of human angst and annoyance. Comedy writer, journalist and broadcaster Ian Collins lists, explains, exposes and mocks that dumb-assed contingent of the human race whose job, it seems, is to make life just a tad more infuriating than it actually needs to be - essentially, folk who do stuff that drives you up the damn wall.

From Brits using chopsticks, over-forties at music festivals, knuckleheads with private number plates through to middle-class protestors, elderly people in small cars and those mind-numbingly embarrassing Facebook-status updates (and, of course, a healthy dose of well-known names too) - Collins's often brutal but hilarious search into the pit of human idiocy leaves few stones unturned. He also answers some of the more serious questions of our time:

  • Why is Jeremy Clarkson officially the UK's greatest living buffoon?
  • Why are receipts evil? * What has Andrew Marr done wrong to make the list?
  • What exactly is man-spread?
  • How could a nice guy like Benedict Cumberbatch annoy anyone?
  • What happens to men's brains when they visit the gym?

Part polemic and part diary, Collins spent a year documenting all those areas (and people) in life that give him the chronic hump. Armed only with a sensible pen, notepad and a standard blood pressure monitor, he sets out to create the ultimate list.

In his words 67 People I'd Like to Slap is the non-negotiable oracle of all things bamboozling when it comes to human behaviour - the definitive guide that no sane person could ever argue against'. Or could you...?
